The Data Coordination Unit (DCU), housed within the Department of Public Health Sciences (DPHS)
at the Medical University of South Carolina
, specializes in providing assistance with
the design of clinical trials and analysis of their data
establishing, implementing and maintaining data
systems for multicenter clinical trials.
The DCU is highly experienced with the design and conduct of Phase I through III trials in a variety of therapeutic areas including neurology,
digestive diseases, psychiatry, and diabetes, as well as trials conducted under FDA Investigational New Drug/New Device applications.
All trial management activities are conducted using the DCU’s internally developed Clinical Trials Management System (CTMS)
referred to as the WebDCU™ system
The WebDCU™ offers a full collection of web-enabled modules for central randomization, protocol and site management
(e.g., drug accounting and shipping, automated SAE reporting, regulatory document tracking), study monitoring, safety reporting, data entry and validation,
and report generation. The system provides a web-based collaborative environment for study team members across all participating clinical sites and
provides all the required tools for site coordination and data management in one efficient and easy to use system.
